- Mesopotamia, a nice online version of a museum exhibit. (via)
- 50 Years of Text Games bonus article: Amnesia.
- MNT Pocket Reform, the smaller version of something I’ve linked before.
- The least friendly keyboard ever, but certainly interesting.
- The Internet as a Public Good.
- GitHub Copilot and open source laundering. This applies to AI art too.
- A mystery with Fedora 36, fontconfig, and xterm (and urxvt). Linked cause I wondered out loud “why that change, in version 36?”
- Dangit, Git!? (via)
- A strategy to defeat AI chessbots.
- The Dwarf Fortress Development Plan. Some of this sounds more like writing an epic novel than a game, which is good! They have a dirt-simple Patreon, too, and graphics are on the way? All news to me.
- Plan 9 was almost a music disk, too. (via)
Your unrelated cartoon of the week: Mega.
No pun, but lots of links in this week’s BSD Now, including a link to EuroBSDCon 2022, happening in Austria.
makefs(8) now supports HAMMER2 on DragonFly, so you can create HAMMER2 file system images, same as a CD image or a DOS disk.
When you are setting up a DragonFly machine on Hetzner, pay attention to this bug report for dhcp setup. The short answer is “use dhcpcd”.
Almost cleaned out the RSS feeds I had waiting.
It’s on Jitsi, so anyone can reach it. Tonight, 7 PM eastern.
This week’s BSD Now talks about a lot of stuff as always, but also notes a time-dependent item: a bhyve presentation coming up on July 12th.
Ian Grindley has created a BSD theme for rEFInd that covers all the BSDs – including DragonFly.
SEMIBUG’s monthly meeting is tonight, and it’s all about OpenSSH, with Michael W. Lucas presenting. He literally wrote the book on it.
This is a week of fun links.
More links this week to make up for last week’s short haul.
DragonFly developer Tuxillo has done something notable by its absence: cleaned up a lot of old bug reports. That’s usually an unseen and unthanked task, so here’s credit for it.
This week’s BSD Now is depressingly honest in the title; no puns. Along with the normal links, there’s a Beastie Bit this week for Networks From Scratch.
An interesting thought: since HAMMER2 is intended to be a multi-master file system, it has to figure out – and quickly – which is the most up to date versions of any given file. That means you could have multiple versions of a file existing at the same time until that decision is made. That wouldn’t be visible from a user perspective.
The Hamilton (Canada) BSD user group will meet through Jitsi tomorrow, June 14th, 4:00 PM Eastern. I’m preposting this based on a SEMIBUG mention.
Mini-theme of hardware this week.
A bit short cause I ran out of time.
Hopefully there’s a new ISO/img on the mirrors for DragonFly 6.2.2 by the time you read this – or you can just update your installation. The changelog is short, because this is a bugfix-level release. Also, don’t forget there’s a new set of binary packages out; update that too if you haven’t.
